First Grade Newsletters





Welcome 1st grade Students and Parents,

As summer continues I have begun planning for the fall, and I am looking forward to seeing you at Green Mountain School and in our class. 

1st grade is a very exciting time!  You will connect with your friends from last year and make new friends, learning new things, having fun and exploring your world.  Some of the special activities you can look forward to are:

  • Visit to the Pumpkin Patch
  • Read Across America Day
  • Dental Hygiene Week
  • Exploring the Science of Light and Sound
  • Writing your own Books
  • Plants Science Unit
  • Plus many more!

Each week you will take home our class newsletter called “1st Grade News”.  In the “1st Grade News” your mom, dad or grandparents will find information about what is being taught in our classroom, activities you can do to practice what you have learned and notes about future events.

The School Board and PTSO will be hosting a Classroom Visitation and Ice Cream Social on Monday, August 26th from 5:30-6:30.  Bring your school supplies and see our classroom.   

I am so excited about school starting and can’t wait to see you for the Ice Cream Social.
